In previous articles, we explained how, through a simple process,  you can download YouTube videos directly to your iPhone or other iOS devices.

In that article, we used the Documents app, which allows us to manage the download via an integrated browser.

We’ve had many inquiries from readers asking us if it’s possible to easily do this through another method. 

The answer is yes, it is possible to download YouTube videos with something called Workflow. Workflow is an Apple automation app.

Before we dive into the details of this article, you should watch the first 60-seconds of this video, and then come back to finish this article. The video and article work together to help you understand how to download YouTube videos directly to your iPhone.

Download YouTube Videos to Your iOS Device with Workflow

To download a YouTube video with Workflow, you just need to have the Workflow app and create a simple workflow (or easily download an already-made one). Here are the steps to install and use a workflow:

  • Download the Workflow app if you do not already have it installed.
  • Open this download link from Safari on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Once the link is opened in the Workflow app, press Get Workflow.
  • In the, open the Share menu and make sure that the workflow runs.

With Workflow app, we can also manage our photos.

To download YouTube videos, follow these steps:

    • In the YouTube app, choose the video you want to download.
    • Click on the Share button, and then click More to open the iOS share menu.
    • Click Run Workflow and choose YouTube Workflow.
    • It will automatically run the download, but first you can choose to save as either video or audio.
    • Now, you will be informed with a notification that the video is stored in your Photo Library.

As you can see, the process is very simple. We just have to press a few buttons once we have the video that we are interested in downloading! Workflow is a powerful tool, and this type of process proves it. Remember that you can download the app for free from the App Store. Previously, it was not free but Apple acquired it a few months ago and made it accessible to everyone.

That is it! This is how we can download YouTube videos to your iPhone or iPad with the help of Workflow app. I hope this article helps you to do the work in a simple way.
